120k non-stop for Hope in the Dark
This Dec, I will walk around the island of Singapore (over 120k) for AWARE's Hope In The Dark campaign to fight against sexual violence in Singapore. AWARE runs Singapore's only dedicated Sexual Assault Care Centre and between 2016 to 2020, the number of survivors seeking support at the centre has tripled, reaching a record of 1,018 cases in 2020.
Please help to support the more vulnerable in our community and show that we care, they are not alone and we will fight for their safety too.
Your donations will support AWARE's Sexual Assault Care Centre, empower parents to educate their children, train members of the public on how to sensitively support survivors and conduct important research and advocacy work.
All donations will be matched 1:1 by the Tote Board and government.
We all know someone who has experienced sexual violence-or else we are that someone. Every week, new incidents of sexual assault, workplace harassment or voyeurism are reported. It's sad, disturbing, frustrating.
This year, AWARE is redoubling our efforts to tackle sexual violence. We address the issue on many fronts - both attending to assault's aftermath, and proactively nipping it in the bud - because that's what it will take to effectively end it. We know this from a decade of running Singapore's only dedicated Sexual Assault Care Centre (SACC).
Help us to:
- Ensure that SACC meets rising demand for its services. We receive some institutional funding, but it's not enough for us to keep up with the many survivors coming forward to receive trauma-informed support
- Empower members of the public to sensitively educate their children and support each other. We aim to expand our Birds & Bees parents' sex education programme and Sexual Assault First Responder Training
- Conduct important research into under-examined areas like tech-facilitated abuse
Let's focus on real change, and get closer to ending violence for good. All donations will be matched 1:1 by the Tote Board and government.
The above impact statements are for illustrative purposes only. All donations received will be used to support AWARE's programmes and services under the HITD fund.
About The Charity
The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services.
In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category.
The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.
AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
